Emerging Northern Irish trio to fight on Conlan v Nikitin

RINGSIDE 24/06/2019

A trio of emerging Northern Irish talents have been added to the historic Conlan vs. Nikitin bill at Belfast’s Féile an Phobail on August 3.

Callum Bradley, Seanie Duffy and Dee Sullivan will all have their chance to shine on an #MTKFightNight screened by BT Sport in association with Frank Warren and Queensberry Promotions and also on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank.

Omagh super-featherweight Bradley has kicked off his professional career with a pair of slick victories at the Ulster Hall while Keady lightweight Duffy and Belfast cruiserweight Sullivan recorded respective stoppage and points wins on their debuts at the same venue back in May.

MTK Global Professional Development Coordinator Jamie Conlan said: “What opportunities these are for three of the brightest young things in Northern Irish boxing.

“These three all fought on the same bill last time out and now they’re all heading for a night they’ll never forget. We’ve high hopes for all of them and believe they’ll show this city what they’re all about on that big stage.”

Headlining an incredible occasion in the Falls Park is Conlan’s younger brother; former world amateur champion Michael Conlan, who gets his chance to avenge his famously controversial Olympic defeat to Vladimir Nikitin.

Already confirmed for what’s fast becoming a lengthy undercard are a quartet of established Belfast stars in Paddy Barnes, Sean McComb, Alfredo Meli and Padraig McCrory.

More news of further fights and fighters on the Féile card will be announced in due course.
